Frank.N.Furter

Rocky Horror Picture Show

On 15th August 1975 The Rocky Horror Picture Show had its UK Premiere

The phrase ‘cult movie’ is over used, but if ever it was deserved it is 1975’s ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ based on the 1973 theatrical performance of the same name.

Starring Tim Curry as the enigmatic Frank N Furter, as well as Susan Sarandon, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick and co-writer Richard O’Brien, the film has become the ultimate cult classic, despite initial critical panning. TRHPS became the ultimate midnight movie with audiences dressing up as featured characters, talking back to the screen throughout, and generally performing alongside the film action.

The film still runs today in limited theatrical releases, making it the longest running theatrical release in history.
